clinton or anybody else, she'll probably be the nominee, who knows. all you say is what's your plan? you're empty handed. whether you're an attractive candidate like christie or someone like that. i'm sorry, i don't have one. well, that's a problem. >> they don't have a plan. they say the same old thing, free market solutions. this is a free market solution, "a." but "b," we know what they're talking about. they're talking about the same health savings accounts that work fine if you're healthy but don't if you're not healthy. and they don't have an idea. and they're going to get more and more isolated. >> we're going to stop now, but this is a good day it could have been a hell of a lot worse. the president was on the ropes there for awhile. >> well, he's off the ropes, but in the sixth or seventh round. it's not over yet. but he's in a better position than he was october 1st. >> i've got to think about that. anyway, thank you david corn who's fine tuning it and michael clamaski. >>> coming up, bill clinton disparaging barack obama and alienating the black supporters in the process. now
clinton and hillary. clinton sat down today and recalled mandela's long years in prison. >> i said, tell me how this changed you. how did you give up 27 of the best years of your life and come out a better than than you went in. he said i realized they could take everything from me except my mind and my heart. those things i would have to give them. he said, i decided not to give them away. >> reporter: all told, there are ten days of national mourning for the late nelson mandela. considering the emotions we're seeing, that might not be enough. >> greg, thank you. >>> much of the u.s. is facing down right wintry blast with frigid temps, ice and snow. several deaths have been reported, most resulting from treacherous driving conditions. hundreds of flights have been canceled. the national weather service issued ice warnings for at least eight states. the temperature in parts of north dakota, as you see here, registered a few degrees below zero. but the windchill pushed it to nearly 40 below. >>> up next, the battle for the soul of the democratic party. but first, here's what some of our f
clinton era economic empowerment zones. right? which i'm pretty sure at one point the republicans were not so much in favor of that. is this part of the reboot? okay, we're just going to give them money? that also, that sounds like stimulus which, again, i thought the republicans were opposed to. >> i look at this as an attempt to legitimize what naomi klein has called disaster capitalism. rand paul shows up and says, listen, the problem with detroit, the problem for voters of color in detroit is democratic policies have been too intense. what we need to do is effectively deregulate the entire economy. we need to focus on cutting taxes for the wealthy. we need to focus on all sorts of right wing education experiments. school choice. vouchers. et cetera, et cetera. that's how we'll solve this problem. and i think there's a danger to this. because i think in a place like detroit that has been hurt by so many different things, that the republicans are hoping they can use a crisis like detroit to say that our policies, our economic policies are the ones that are going to liberate people. e
down a job from the president and said to some extent you are seeing the clinton effect. why take the risks of worging in a second obama administration when you can make $300,000 and work for hillary. this is a democrat saying this. a blind quote, here's the thing. it's stunning to read and not stunning to hear. >> it's not stunning at all in the fact that it's the way washington thinks. if you told me the president would not pass gun control, of course not. immigration we thought was something where there was potential for movement. part of this is the republicans. there is big policy visiting the republicans. that's driving this. they passed a tax increase with the president, but in general not a lot moving. things are going to move on and they are looking and talking about hillary clinton and what's going to happen then in 2017 as if he's a lame duck already. >> that doesn't help. this quote is like -- the problem the president has is that perception among democrats in washington that he's already a lame duck. that's what the quote screams. >> you have to separate out what goes
to leave office. his approval rating went up to 63%. similar for ept president clinton. despite the lewinsky scandal that played out, his approval rating never dropped below 60%. the unemployment rate never rose above 4.7%. there was a failing economy and uneven creation in 06 and 07 that kept george w. bush from recovering from the damage done to him politically by katrina and the iraq war. could the economy do for president obama and cure him from his health care ills? the director the moody's and specializing in macro economics and economic indicator. let me start with are things as rosy as they look going into 2014? >> things are looking better. they might be labeling things as rosy. they have a long way to go before it is healed. the mix of jobs is not what we like to see. a lot of jobs are being created in the industries and that's going to change in 2014. the stronger growth are falling into place. >> those conditions are what? that impact is fading and the job market is healing. the one wild card for 2014 will be conphi dechblts that's the one thing that has been the mis
%. and jeb bush 10.5%: all these men have a chance to run against hillary clinton in 2016. mrs. clinton is far ahead of any democratic challenger and will remain so. with americans disenchanted by obama care and a bad economy, it would seem the republicans would have some momentum, but they don't. because there is not one clear message. and even on philosophy, political philosophy, the party is deeply divided. it will take a leader like ronald reagan to help heal that breach. now, if you look at the situation nationwide, it's clear the democrats are going to campaign largely in poor and working class precincts. today fast food workers across the country demonstrated for a $15 an hour wage. that has been endorsed by president obama and most every other democrat. the so-called living wage issue will be a democratic hallmark next year. of course, if you give fast food workers a minimum of 15 bucks an hour, fast food prices go up for everybody. so, americans will pay more. that is a primary consideration in the debate. talking points believes the republican party must drop ideology almost e
him some slack. president clinton tries to clarify his claims about junk insurance. why won't though use the term "junk insurance". and still ahead in seattle, it's the workers against boeing. stay with us. humans. even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. which is why, at liberty mutual insurance, auto policies come with new car replacement and accident forgiveness if you qualify. see what else comes standard at libertymutual.com. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility. what's your policy? congestion, for the smog. but there are a lot of people that do ride the bus. and now that the buses are running on natural gas, they don't throw out as much pollution into the air. so i feel good. i feel like i'm doing my part to help out the environment. life with crohn's disease ois a daily game of "what if's". what if my abdominal pain and cramps come back? what if the plane gets delayed? what if i can't hide my symptoms? what if? but what if the most important question is the one you're not asking? what if the underlying cause of your symp
like this are crying foul. david shuster said he used slang when interviewing hillary clinton asking if they were going to be pimping out chelsea clinton. he said i don't understand what's happening here. somebody must have pictures of phil griffin. >> griffin the misnbc president. come back to the hiring of alec baldwin, an actor and comedian unaware of the fact a weekly he's had anger issues in the past. do you get shocked over this? >> you can't compare all these three things. the cbs thing is a genuine journalistic miscarriage. the alec baldwin thing, he'd barely been on the air at all and he is a loose cannon. they probably thought differently of it very quickly after hiring him, whether he had done that or not. then you have the martin bashir thing, which was really quite different. he was making a very legitimate point about sarah palin. >> let's back up for people who haven't been following. sarah palin had given a speech in which she compared the national debt and owing money to china to slavery. a lot of people didn't like that. i said this in the beginning, it is fair game
. >>> we'll hear from president bill clinton. >>> motor city master pieces. the latest on possibly selling artwork opened by detroit. could it pull the city it of bankruptcy, and should it? >>> good morning, everyone. welcome to "weekends with alex wit witt". president obama surging congress to extend benefits for 1.3 million workers. they are set to expire just three days after christmas. >> if congress refuses to act it won't just hurt families already struggling. it will actually harm our economy. unemployment insurance is one of the most effective ways there is to boost our economy. when people have money to spend on basic necessities, that means more customers for our businesses and ultimately more jobs. >> the republicans are focusing on obama care. >> families who work hard and play by the rules deserve some basic choices, fairness and relief. that's why the house has passed legislation to delay the individual mandate for all americans and let you keep the plan you like. these proposals are among the dozens of jobs bill awaiting action in the democratic-run senate. >>> good news on
a chance to run against hillary clinton in 2016. mrs. clinton is far ahead of any democratic challenger and will remain so. with americans disenchanted by obama care and a bad economy, it would seem the republicans would have some momentum, but they don't. because there is not one clear message. and even on philosophy, political philosophy, the party is deeply divided. it will take a leader like ronald reagan to help heal that breach. now, if you look at the situation nationwide, it's clear the democrats are going to campaign largely in poor and working class precincts. today fast food workers across the country demonstrated for a $15 an hour wage. that has been endorsed by president obama and most every other democrat. the so-called living wage issue will be a democratic hallmark next year. of course, if you give fast food workers a minimum of 15 bucks an hour, fast food prices go up for everybody. so, americans will pay more. that is a primary consideration in the debate. talking points believes the republican party must drop ideology almost entirely and concentrate on the economy and
suggesting that the clintons were pimping out their daughter. so if you attacked a liberal, that was unacceptable but attacking sarah palin, that was fine. so i agree with kirsten on this one. there is definite double-standard. jon: kirsten, you and sarah palin probably don't share too many political philosophies. you did grow up in alaska i know. what do you think about the way she has handled it? >> she has handled it exactly right way. she accepted the apology. been gracious about it. i think as she said she is probably become a little bit inured to these kinds of attacks because they're, have been so over the top and insane for so long. this one does seem to almost, i mean, this one may actually take the cake i think of all the attacks on sarah palin but i think she just, you know, she accepted the apology and said move on. >> all right. we are going to leave it there. thanks for joining us there today for this coverage of the, of media coverage i guess you could say. >> thank you. >> judy miller, kirsten powers. thank you both. >> thank you. jenna: stunning new develop
no longer belongs to us. he belongs to the ages. >> reporter: and former presidents clinton, bush and carter united to mourn the leader, in cities across the nation, people coming together to honor the man who has become a global symbol for justice and humanity, a touching tribute lights a marquee at the legendary apollo theater in harlem where nelson mandela visited to his first trip to the u.s. in 1990. >> he came to the state office building, drew about 200,000 people out here that day. and those struggles that we have here in the united states, he was very familiar with and they were going through the same in south africa. >> reporter: news of his death traveled swiftly around the world. prince william and kate middleton heard the news while attending the premiere of the film "mandela: long walk to freedom." >> we are reminded how extraordinary nelson mandela was. >> reporter: at the united nations, silence. and the remembrance of his enormous impact. >> no one did more in our time to advance the values and aspirations of the united nations. nelson mandela showed what is possible for our
during clinton's second terrell. take us back to that moment, eleanor cook in the last segment set up what a historic moment that was to have a president's veto overwritten. the question of sanctions in 1986. can you take us back to the dewitt playing out in your party? because there were plenty of republicans who voted to override that veto. there were also plenty of republicans, jesse helms, orrin hatch, thad cochran that wouldn't do it. take us back and tell us what that was all about. >> well, i think there were two things at work. your guests talked about this being a vote and debate about foreign policy, about the anc being a proxy for the soviet union and certainly there was the element of communism involved and this was really a support for a communist group. but deeply underlying that was really the issue of racism and the evil of racism and the discussion about communism i think was just an overlay of that, that you look at our own history, how long it took us to try to eliminate the racism in our own society. i was watching the pictures you were showing. i was thinking of t
a return visit to his former prison cell, this time accompanied by president bill clinton, who later presented him with the congressional gold medal. mandela stepped down as president in 1999, but he lived long enough to see the united states elect its own black president. >> so help me god. >> reporter: and in 2011 he was paid a visit in south africa by first lady michelle obama who brought along first daughters malia and sasha. admired around the world and revered at home, nelson mandela's south africa embraced a multiracial future and re-entered the family of nations. he leaves a legacy of freedom and proof that one life can make a difference. >> we are one country, we are one people. >> reporter: brian williams, nbc news, new york. >>> we'll have much more on mandela's death in just a moment, but first, a massive winter storm is blasting its way across much of the country. in oklahoma, a number of accidents have been reported due to the recent snow accumulation. temperatures in missouri hit so low that roads became sheets of ice leaving drivers sliding all over the place. now for
of the short attention span. they lived through vices of our obsession, i think the former clinton communications guy who said the white house press corps is like the kids at a soccer game they just chase the ball. so we've chased the ball and now we'll chase another one for a while. that's my question. what does the white house think the issues are that can take the 37%, 38% and bump it up. >> if people get coverage and it's cheaper. they think at the end of the day they will reward the politicians that voted for it. people have to get on the site. they have to be able to get the insurance. they have to see a subsidy that allows home to get insurance that costs them less. they are getting better benefits. those two things don't happen. big promise was not kept. >> really quickly, willie, i figured it out. very excited. figured out where i'll put the picture of willie. >> good. >> in my household. >> where? >> right there. you like that? >> there he go. >> i put on my paisley smoking jacket at night and sit there. >> you got the stylist for the lili pulitzer campaign. >> kind of cr

clinton's rise to power. when you look at bill clinton coming to power after three disastrous elections where the democratic party was viewed as unelectable by a lot of the country, it was fueled by ideas, by platform, by a vision of where to lead to reinvent the party. and you see the great deficit in those remarks by the speaker that the congressional wing of the republican party has in the eyes of the american people, absolutely bereft of ideas. i'm not a fan of the affordable care act, but my party has no solutions to deal with what's a real issue. no working person in this country, for example, should lose their house, go bankrupt, because their kid breaks their leg or their spouse gets leukemia, so republicans, who were once the party of ideas, during the regan era, through the 1990s along with president clinton, we have collapsed as far as our ability to be policy entrepreneurs. that's the great challenge if we're to be successful in 2016, to have candidates to break away, put forward ideas about economic growth, health care, and ideas that americans are focused on. >> jonathan,
clinton clarifies his infamous comment about smoking marijuana and not inhaling. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> back to "hardball," and now for the sideshow. bill clinton shed some new light on one of his most enduring quotes from his 1992 campaign, no, it's not a place called hope but his defense about smoking pot. >> new controversy is swirling around in the form of marijuana smoke. it was during this appearance that he was asked point blank about illegal drugs. >> and that when i was in england, i experimented with marijuana a time or two, and i didn't like it and didn't inhale and never did it again. >> since then i didn't inhale has become one of the most quoted remarks in politics. >> like many things in the press, that whole thing has been totally twisted. i didn't say i was holier than thou. i said i tried. i never denied that i used marijuana. i told the truth. i thought it was funny. and with the only journalist who was there said i told the truth. everyone else had to cover that up because that's not the story they wanted to tell. so that's a silly thing
. imagine if a fox host had resigned after making outrageous comments about hillary clinton would it have been in the b section >> no. it would be on the front page. when you go after a conservative woman that's not the same outrage. we can't live in a society where there's only certain, you know, words or people if you go after that's crossed the lined and unacceptable. i want people to be judged on their show and whether or not it's a good show. we all make mistakes. we're all going to make makes. >> i'm with that. you make mistakes and i said last week you say you're sorry, and that's great. but in this case, rick, i can't help but think that it affected the show and it would affect his performance going forward. >> his show was bad all along. he's been saying terrible things all along. >> going back to five years ago when march shin bashir was suspended at abc to going an asian-american journalist comments and making comments on how they dressed.e ultimate que question here is this going to affect the tone of other people at msnbc and elsewhere in a cable culture that i would say enco
today, it's not affordable. >> remember hillary clinton had a plan. it was called hillary plan. was that antiwomen. remember when reagan's economic plan came forward, including david stockman was upset about it. they called it reagonomics. what about nick -- nixonan. it is reflective of the person who put their plan forward. >> was hillary care sexist? i think when obamacare was being used and a number supported it the connotation was positive. now that you have an administration with an anemic approval rating, those that are in support of the president and obamacare are sidestepping or back stepping away from the term because the connotation is no longer positive. >> if you use the term obamacare, according to her, it sounds like she's saying you're a racist. >> hop on facebook, i know you probably missed the show, and tell me if you think she's right on the money or not. >> your kids toys could contain toxic chemicals? and it's totally legal. what you need to know. >> senator ron johnson is here today. he says stop calling the president's health care law obamacare. the reason
seen president obama as an up start, a beginner. he famously backed hillary clinton. and then of course when he was elected, brought na office. charlie rangel thought he would have access to the white house as chairman of the house ways and means committee. he didn't get access. >> and who did? >> al sharpton. that's who they went with for their community outreach. they went with al sharpton over charlie rangel. charlie rangel has been pretty honest about the failures of obama care. the real difference is style. charlie rangel likes other people. he is a warm person. spend an afternoon with charlie rangel. he exsuds an affection for other human beings. that is wholly absent from president obama. name five people close to him? they don't exist. you can name 500 for charlie rangel. >> remember the picture of him on the beach in the dominican republic. he evaded taxes on the cottage. the president didn't take to his side and also you remember the $30,000 plate funt raising event that went on in harlem, which is the district of charlie rangel. he wasn't invited. >> but you can have a conver
bill clinton played the saxophone on the arsenio hall show. it ended when "the jefferysons" moved on up. racism ended when willis was adopted by richard drummond and racism ended when the iphone was available in black and white. the slip was more than fodder for jokes. it's also why the gop and modern right go to create the santa clausification of rosa parks and martin luther king jr. and other civil rights leaders. they are cast as figures with no history or context, just celebrated as the good guys who fought the forces of evil. consider the 2005 eulogy for parks from bill frist, flagged today. frisk said it was "not an intentional attempt to change a nation but a singular act aimed at restoring the dignity of the individual." and that gets it exactly wrong. rosa parks was an actual human being who was embedded in a whole bunch of institutions and organizations that were very much trying to change the nation. she was part of not just the liberal left, but the radical left. she trained at the highlander folk school in tennessitennesse legendary leftist training guard regarded as a comm
, you've got some explaining to do. so he's trying to break it down. he talks about bill clinton as explainer in chief. and bill clinton is great. but barack obama has got mad skills, because he clients that baptist preacher-like, slow cadence, where he can get the humor in there. and preachers will say god will slow walk you. and then he's got the peyton manning -- sorry for these analogies. peyton manning throws the ball before the receiver turns the ball to where it should be so he can receive it when it gets there. so what obama is hoping is that i'm going to put out there now. because a year from now, people aren't going to remember the roll-out stuff. it's going to be like thank god i went to the doctor and it wasn't the emergency ward and guess what? now i've got my diabetes under control, my chemotherapy here, my viagra. there will be millions of men who will rise to the occasion and say we are grateful for what he has done. >> i just caught that. the thing is, zerlina, i think it's actually true, as funny as that was -- and i'm glad you made that appointment, the website
and former president bill clinton back tracking about his earlier remarks about the law which did so much damage. i want to play how the president is getting in line with president obama now. >> how difficult it is for you to suggest something to a sitting president. do you take credit for president barack obama honoring his word on obama care? >> first of all, i think it's important to point out he actually has tried to go beyond what he promised now. and in many places, he will be able to do that. >> you don't take credit for that? >> no. i waited for him to say that he felt badly about it. but the truth is the law that he signed did grandfather in the policies that were in existence when he signed the law. >> so we're hearing from a different tone of bill clinton there, senator. we've got the newfound confidence that we're watching from the president, his white house, this new strike team. there are some of leaders right there, these democratic lawmakers. do you think there's enough time for the president to rewrite the narrative on obama care? >> absolutely. absolutely, thomas. the ma
of action in washington. to quote former president clinton, this takes some brass. >> the american people work hard, and they've got a right to expect their elected representatives to do the same. house republicans are listening. the senate, the president continue to stand in the way of the people's priorities. >> the people's priorities? let's take a look at some of those priorities. 76% want an increase in the minimum wage. how about focusing on that? 77% want a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. there's a priority you should focus on. and nearly one year after the newtown tragedy, 89% support background checks. earth to speaker boehner. those are the people's priorities. joining me now is congressman jim mcdermott, democrat from washington. thanks for coming on the show tonight. >> good to be here, al. >> they are holding hearings on aliens with just seven workdays left in this year. what do you make of that, congressman? >> well, it's amazing to watch them while away the hours doing nothing. not only did they have a hearing on that. today they had another hearing on health ca

nixon, ronald reagan, bill clinton -- you look at their calendar and you can see what's important to them. even if you don't know anything about what was going on at that time, look at that calendar and you'll see what their priorities are. in the case of president obama, if you look at his calendar, there is no evidence whatsoever that is focused or has much interest in health care at all. >> they say that -- they went on to say they have a list of all their meetings. 277 private meetings with 16 other cabinet members. 277 with 16 other cabinetmakers -- cabinetmakers, they pretty much make their own cabinets in the white house. so that just shows a lack of focus, a lack of interest. it remind me of the fact that i remember when james woolsey was the director of the c.i.a. with bill clinton. he didn't have much interest in surveillance, intelligence and international affairs when he got started. it all changes and people used to say james woolsey never gets to see the president. it does play into a narrative we're beginning to see. it's beginning to show the president, even though

[ laughter ] here's what i'll say, both hilary and joe would make outstanding presidents and possess the qualities that are needed to be outstanding presidents. i think joe biden will go down in history as one of the best vice presidents ever. hilary i think will go down in history as one of the finest secretary of states we've had and helped transition us away from a deep hole we were in when i first came into office around the world. >> that's the only answer he could have given to that question? >> he gave it well. even pushed he said i'm not touching that one. he cannot weigh in on this one and i suspect he will get right up to the next election and where there ever to be an contest that's unimaginable between joe biden and hillary clinton in the nominating process i can't imagine barack obama weighing in on that one. in the larger context joe biden is doing hillary clinton a favor by having his name out there. the idea he can keep this as a race
presidents clinton, bush and carter as well, a huge delegation from the united states. then nelson mandela's body will lie in state at the union buildings here in pretoria, the capital, for several days. and then again, the state funeral on sunday. during that entire week, there will be events, small, big, remembrances of all sorts. it's hard to understate the significance -- historical significance of this event, of this moment for this country and the rest of the world. and here as has been the case for the past two nights, a huge outpouring of emotion, a lot of celebration. but the mood is mixed. some somber, a lot of remembrances. this is the beginning of a very long good-bye to nelson mandela by this country and the world. >> nbc's ron allen live for us in johannesburg, ron, thank you so much. as south africans prepare to bury nelson mandela, his death has ignited a fresh round of questions over what his true legacy should be. civil rights icon, terrorist, communist? here to have that conversation with me, former u.s. ambassador to south africa donald gibbs, msnbc analyst michael stee

clinton had ups and downs with divided government. impeachment was no walk in the park but he still had a lot of stuff done because people on the hill willing to work with him. newt gingrich worked with him. >> they balanced the budget for three years. look what they did. i think grownups. i gave a speech on this book tour, i've been on this book tore twor the last couple of weeks or two months now. what gets the biggest applause, we don't need more democrats or republicans, we need more grownups. everybody seems to know what that means. a grown-up makes sure there's food on the table, lights go out at night, makes sure there's heating, make sure bills are paid, is responsible. i think that's what people want in government is responsible leadership. it's pretty basic. >> that's why people are reading and buying "tip and the gipper." you're on this book tour. that's why people are relating to it, it's exactly about the paradigm of people working across party lines. arguably this white house has not found partners on the hill to work with. >> i don't know, sometimes i feel as i did for ma
olbermann, now gone. dylan ratigan, now gone. david schuster. and he went after hillary clinton's daughter and said she was being pimped out by her mom. he was suspended. there is a disrespect for women over at msnbc. it's allowed by the executives. he should have been fired. they shouldn't have waited for him to take a vacation at thanksgiving and submit a letter on his own. maybe they pressured him to do it. i think this is a systematic problem. >> let me play another guy we run often on this program. he has a show still. ed schultz. >> you're damn right dick new health care in this country. he's an enemy of the country in my opinion, dick cheney is. he's an enemy of the country lord, take him to the promised land. i don't wish the guy goes to hell. i just want him out of here. do you know what they are talking about? like the right wing slut, laura ingram? she's a talk slut. >> wow. fellow lib? >> i know you want a chance to beat up on the liberal side. but seems to me there should be someone who watches out for this stuff. >> i have at least had a hearing and when i have said bad thin
and laws in the 400s and 500s and 600s and when newt gingrich was battling with bill clinton, that was in the 300s. right now in the 113th congress, we have a year to go and they finished 56 pieces of legislation that has become law. the 112th congress was then a low of 283. we are living in unprecedented times. you have a blame game of who is responsible for this. the numbers speak for themselves. >> what's interesting is the lines of attack, this idea that the senate has been slow. we sent all these bills to the senate. the ways of parliamentary procedure, the senate was built to be slow. that is the reason as to why. there is a filibuster here. they can't pass as quickly as the house can. when that goes out to the american people, it's not that it hurts one party more than the other, but it's a house from all incumbent. >> that's one of the big arguments. people say washington is broken. whether you are republican or democrat, it's not working at all the way it should be. the numbers do speak for themselves. when john boehner said it acted on the 150 pieces of legislation.
president clinton raised the minimum wage, same cry but it didn't happen. i agree with senator hutchison, do a separate carveout for students paid at a lower wage as opposed to adults trying to protect themselves and their families, that makes sense. that's reasonable. there ought to be grounds for a reasonable compromise so we can begin to do something about the income inequality in this country. >> let me switch to you foreign policy. secretary kerry met three hours with prime minister netanyahu. he's heading back to jerusalem for more private meetings with netanyahu. they agreed to disagree about the short-term iran deal. senator hutchison, his argument, kerry's argument, we still are keeping sanctions other than freezing assets. this will be better for israel in the long-term and we won't agree to a long-term deal that gives iran the ability to have a nuclear weapon. netanyahu's argument is there would be breakout capability. what do you think the secretary of state should be doing? >> i think you're seeing some of the effects right now whereas mr. netanyahu was going to stop putting set

. didn't happen. with best intentions and all efforts, president clinton vowed that north korea won't go nuclear. why is this nuclear deal different than any other nuclear deal? >> well, we don't know yet. we don't know yet. >> an honest answer there, but is there any real good answer for that question or did the president nail it? >> i think the president did nail it. it's not very satisfying for folks on either side of this issue. there's a lot of ambiguity. it allows both sides to claim some semblance of victory without any real hard and vast terms here. it's better to think of this as a framework. the president yesterday also said that he thought that as a practical matter, if the deal were to be nailed down and finalized, that it would prevent iran from having the, quote, breakout ability to go and enrich uranium to the point where they would have nuclear bomb capability. however, right after the geneva talks, you heard rouhani from iran say that he thought that what this deal, what this framework did was recognize in the eyes of the world and the international community that iran d
. this should be no surprise to anyone who's paid attention to history. bill clinton emerged from an impeachment scandal with the highest approval rating of his career. he's the president. he has the support -- he won the 2012 election with the support of many americans. and the health care law is here to stay. it's not going away any time soon. >> you know, james, some in the media talk over and over -- i mean, we've been hearing for the last few weeks. it goes all the way back to jim demint's waterloo comment. listen to this. >> one pundit says that the obama care debacle marks the, quote, end of obama's presidency and the beginning of his lame duck years in the white house. >> this is a lame duck status we're in now. >> when we look back at the end of his presidency, we're going to say this was the tipping point of his relevancy. i don't think he can recover fully. >> i mean, it's over and over and over again, james. >> it is, rev. they think if they say it enough it will become reality. also i like alex's piece a lot today. because i think what it reflects for us especially those of us in th
-year extension that first came up in the 80s, passed by clinton and bush and eventually president obama most likely, which continues a government ban on these sort of plastic weapons that cannot be detected by metal detectors. what was the issue here, new york democratic charles schumer, he wanted more. he said that we should define a gun by having more metal parts. in order to try to avoid -- this is too lenient, if you have a 3d printer, you can make plastic parts that won't be detected. however, because democrats wanted to get this ban through, a lot of them withdrew their opposition of the united states house, so much so this was passed by a voice vote. it's very rare that anything in the u.s. how's is passed by a voice vote. you saw it. rob andrews, a democrat from new jersey, close to the house leadership. don't let the perfect get in the way of good. as we've seen this past year, tamron, anything that has to do with any semblance of gun control turns off a large faction of the house gop conference and more conservative groups and the nra has been quiet on this. they said this law, thi
